25 for Wildlife: A Campaign Connecting Landscapes and People
For 25 years, the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation has helped our community to live compatibly with wildlife – by working collaboratively with landowners and public land managers to remove or improve fences, by empowering citizen naturalists to build our local knowledge base, and by acting to make roads safer for people and animals. Your hands-on volunteer work and direct financial support have made our community a better place for wildlife – and for us! With your help, we’ll remain focused on improving the landscape for wildlife as we engage citizens in active stewardship.
In November, we introduced a plan to celebrate our 25th anniversary by strategically connecting people to each other across this remarkable landscape. We are focusing on preserving and improving the migration corridors within and extending outward from Jackson Hole. We hope to ensure that our connected communities are designed to support both people and wildlife into the future. Thank you for helping us exceed our goal of $125,000 well ahead of our goal date of Feb. 25, 2018 (the actual 25th anniversary of JHWF)! Our community’s land ethic is reflected in this deeply appreciated commitment to wildlife!
While acknowledging the great work completed by hundreds or thousands of people over the past 25 years, we also share our deep sadness at the passing of JHWF co-founder Meredith Campbell in January. Meredith leaves behind a legacy of citizen engagement that remains the inspiration for Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation’s work. Meredith’s impact on the community and the many benefits she initiated for wildlife endure as part of the heart of the Jackson Hole Wildlife Foundation. She will be dearly missed.
There are many ways for you to join us in this conservation work – with your hands, your eyes and your voice. These wildlife conservation goals are appropriately ambitious given the wild legacy we’ve inherited. Can we count on you to support our strategic corridor work?
We're growing our wildlife-friendly community!
We’ve already spread our wings to Dubois to expand Nature Mapping Jackson Hole by building a Mountain Bluebird nestbox trail. Is your community in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem (GYE) next?
